Both teams to score at Colchester United vs Newport County 5/6 for Friday’s League Two matchup

Posted November 25th, 2021 | By: Tom Dunstan

Competition: League Two

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

Hoping to find a route back into the play-off spots, Newport will make the trip to Colchester on Friday night when this weekend’s League Two fixtures open up.

Starting with the hosts, managing to pick up what was a hugely impressive display earlier in the week, there is no doubt that Colchester will be desperate to build off of that result. In their 17 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded five wins, five draws and seven defeats, scoring 15 and conceding 21 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 20, the Essex-based outfit open this weekend’s fixtures sat down in 19th and three points adrift of finding a route into the top-half. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a 3-1 win against Exeter on home soil, that was just Colchester’s third League Two victory from their last 11 attempts. Likewise, it should also be noted, Friday’s hosts have seen three of their last four fourth-tier contests finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, while Newport might find themselves still in the hunt to clinch a play-off spot, they are in the midst of what has been a downbeat run of form. In their 18 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, six draws and five defeats, scoring 29 and conceding 22 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 27, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat ninth in the table and just two points adrift of breaking into the top-six. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 1-1 draw against Crawley on the road, Newport have managed to win just one of their last five matchups across all formats. Likewise, it should be noted, with Friday’s guests seeing each of their last three League Two contests finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
